The following links are to websites that list comedogenic ingredients. You can research the ingredients in your product(s) and determine if any might be problematic. Remember that the further down on the list of ingredients, the less percentage of that ingredient is in the product. So a comedogenic ingredient that is in the last half of an ingredient list may or may not cause you problems.
